    .....sucks, frankly. Here in Central Florida, we have had a heavy thunderstorm for nearly everyday for two weeks. Having the second highest amount of lightning-strikes in the world makes my job as a PC tech difficult. I am replacing network cards like crazy.

    Rainy in Tampa as well. Muggy as all hell, I hate it.

    Doesn't the lightning kind of provide you with job security. Imagine if your clients began investing in surge protectors, you'd be bored all day!

    Yeah, but the hail that's hitting me in my work van right now is annoying. I took some vids with my camera, I'll post them to youtube later today.

    Lightning struck less than 50 yards from my call center and my call center in Tampa and the noise was louder than I have ever heard before. In fact the lightning came down at an angle viewed from one side of the building to hit the ground viewd from the next adjacent side of the building.

    It's been storming about every day over here too. The cable went out last night about 8, so that really sucked. 101 here yesterday.

    I know it sucked really bad over in Palatka where I was working! Rain almost every day, and temps in the high 90's when it wasn't raining. This weather keeps you on your toes......

    The rain has been good for my yard, but the heat has been brutal.

    I'm running the air on 78F and when you come in from the outside it feels like you're walking into a refrigerator.
